Big / Vashti Harrison.

Harrison, Vashti, (author, illustrator.).

Once there was a girl, she had a big laugh and a big heart and very big dreams. And it was good, until it wasn't. The first picture book written and illustrated by award-winning and bestselling creator Vashti Harrison traces a child's journey to self-love and shows the power of words to both hurt and heal. With spare text and exquisite illustrations, this emotional exploration of being big in a world that prizes small is a tender portrayal of how you can stand out and feel invisible at the same time.
